I was clearing out my hard drive and stumbled upon these two pictures. This was in 2016. I was buying my vision board to pin all of MY PLANS on it. Not once did I ask God … What plans do you have for me? How do you want to use me? Everything I went home and placed on this vision board was flesh-led instead of being spirit- led.
Back then I didn’t even think it was important to consult God before my plans. It was more of “well this is what I want so God will make it work out”. I had it all wrong.
The second I got baptized – the Holy Spirit led me to basically clear the board. EVERYTHING. I removed the year stamps on the goals eg. open my own private practice in 10 years… and placed it back on the board. This time around I trusted God with His plans and His timing – I watched my life change drastically.
I placed more bible verses to memorize, more declarations over my life and the goals became less flesh driven and more purpose – heaven driven.
My little testimony? I changed everything on that vision board February 27,2017. June 29, 2017 – I left a horrible work situation (a job god told me not to take in the first place) and was unemployed. In three short months, that “ten year practice” goal turned into an October 2017 reality.
It was only by the work of God – He opened those doors, aligned the right people, location, provided overwhelming family and friend support & the suppliers. God is truly amazing. I was mind blown at the end of the journey. I can’t wait to see what He does next. He is faithful. Trust His timing.
Will you trust His timing today?
lots of love,

Did you know that “I AM” is the greatest statement you can use to describe yourself?
Let’s go….. HI! *waves*
I AM Dayna
I AM a Daughter of the King
I AM a daughter
I AM a sister
I AM an aunt
I AM a Dentist
I AM great
I AM intelligent
I AM beautiful
I AM brave
I AM worthy
I AM strong
I AM successful
I AM able
As 2017 is coming to an end I can’t help but ask myself a few questions during my self- reflection:
1. What excuses am I making that’s preventing me from walking into my purpose / calling ?
2. Am I making God the centre of it all?
3. How am I connected to my creator?
4. Am I surrounding myself with the right people?
5. What can and should I be doing to activate my full potential?
One thing I definitely learned this year is that is very important to stay in my lane. You see dear ones, the grass is not always greener on the other side.
I have also learned:
1. That I should not be afraid to ask for help and accept it graciously.
2. It is okay to be super successful
3. It is powerful to be a woman, oh hey Proverbs 31 woman!
4. It is okay to fail and learn from the mistakes I have made good and bad.
With humility and gratitude, we should all aim to be inspired by our own purpose so as to inspire others.
I challenge you to discover your “ I AM”. Your I AM makes you who you are and I would like to think that makes you unique!
So stay in your lane and put death to comparison whilst remembering God is the creator of all and He is always good!
lots of love,
